Elevian

Organization Description

Elevian is a company working on identifying blood factors which can spur regeneration and have been working with a naturally occurring molecule known as “growth differentiation factor 11” (“GDF11”). Their scientific founders have demonstrated that when aged mice are given GDF11 it reduces age-related cardiac hypertrophy, accelerates skeletal muscle repair, improves exercise capacity, improves brain function and cerebral blood flow, and improves metabolism.

Elevian is engaged in the development of a number of therapies that increase GDF11 and other beneficial factors found in young blood, this aim is to then use these factors to restore lost regenerative capacity in older people to maintain health and prevent age-related diseases.
